You and me both, brutha!!

Although I think my wife might enjoy a tandem. Especially if I'm the one pedaling! Doh! We need to find a place to rent one so she can get a feel for it over a weekend. Of course, that's after she has the baby this month.

We're thinking of the same thing...Not the baby part, but renting a tandem to see if we can work together. With all this tandem bike lust around, we're getting excited about droping a dime.

Geez, at this rate, I'm going to have to build up the tandem frame on the side of the house and, uh... clone myself.

Nice bike.

The captain's compartment might be a little small for you. Sounds just right for Cathy as the stoker though. We're getting a custom tandem because we're both very close in height and the stoker compartment is too small for me. I'm just a shade under 5'5". You're welcome to test it out though.
